Three Kingdoms City - Wuxi

From the name you must already have known that this place has something to do with the Chinese history thing. Well, it pretty much does, but pretty much not. How is that so? I was expecting that these place were the place where they used to have war or something but apparently I was wrong. 

Three Kingdoms City which is located at 无锡 (Wuxi, an hour by car from Shanghai). This place were actually built by CCTV, China's national TV company, and was actually a place where they shoot movies or films or anything Three Kingdoms related. So basically this place does not have any historical thing or whatsoever.

At this place, there are also some tourists attraction like some people dancing like they were on a war, and there are also other shows that I didn't manage to see. Here we can also sit on an ancient-ship-wannabe to take a tour around Taihu (Tai Lake, one of China's biggest lake).

Every 10 in the morning and 4 in the afternoon, there will also be another special tourist attraction, which was the horse riding. You know, just some people, riding the horse, pretending they were on a war, hitting each other and so on (and also some explosions that will shock you out). The show lasted for only 15 minutes each time. Before and after the show, they will let tourists to take a ride on the horses for a round (you'll have to pay, of course).

To be honest, I don't think this place is interesting, at all. Since you know, this is not the REAL Three Kingdoms City or what. But since we were on a family tour and this place is in the itinerary, so did we go there. I wouldn't recommend this place, but if any of you are interested, please go ahead :P

So, that was my "review" for the place. Hope you guys enjoy this, take care :))
